Starting Monday, the City of Windsor is launching a two-week enforcement blitz targeting illegal signs.

They city says that particular attention will be paid to illegal signs on the public right of way, but signs illegally placed on private property, buildings and fences will also be targeted.

“The main concern we have is public safety,” said Mark Winterton, Executive Director of Operations. “Improperly placed temporary signs can impede visibility for motorists and pedestrians”.

Complaints about temporary signs advertising everything from landscaping services to craft sales are on the increase, according to Winterton.

Next week’s joint initiative involving staff from By-law Enforcement, Public Works and Building Inspections will also educate sign owners about the by-laws surrounding acceptable locations and the permits required.

To report an illegal temporary sign, contact 3-1-1.
